Basketball Overview

The Lincolnton Optimist Club (LOC) basketball league supports the youth of Lincoln County and the surrounding areas by offering a low-cost, competitive youth basketball league from December to March each year. Our exciting program focuses on growing the love and fundamentals of basketball. 

Our recreational program appeals to boys and girls of all skill levels. Our league uses mandatory minimum play rules and modified rules in each division based on age levels. 

Age Divisions

The LOC basketball league is organized in the following age/grade brackets:

  • K-1st (co-ed)
  • 2nd-3rd (boys and girls)
  • 4th-5th (boys and girls)
  • 6th-7th (boys and girls)
  • 8th-9th (boys and girls)

*Divisions are evaluated each year based on the number of registrants and some age groups may be combined.


The Lincolnton Optimist Club uses player evaluations and prior season information to assist with parity within each division.  This balance within each division creates exciting play and fun for all participants.


The LOC does not own any facilities. Each year, we partner with Lincoln County and Lincoln County Schools to rent local school facilities for practices and game days. A portion of registration fees helps cover the costs associated with these facilities.


As part of your registration fee, each participant is provided with a reversible jersey.
